My name is Vladimir Remenar and I was born on 26th of June 1981 in Zagreb, Croatia where I grew up and went to school. Even as a kid I liked poking around with electricity and electrical appliances so a reasonable choice was to go to electrical engineering high school. I attended Srednja škola “Sesvete” high school and graduated as electrical engineer. Afterwards I signed up for college and my choice was Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences, University of Zagreb (cro. Fakultet prometnih znanosti, Sveučilište u Zagrebu) where I graduated as postal and telecommunications traffic engineer with a thesis “Designing and Developing of Distance Learning System for Educational Process Requirements of Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences (cro. Projektiranje i izgradnja sustava daljinskog učenja za potrebe studiranja na Fakultetu prometnih znanosti) . During that period I attended Information Systems in Postal and Communication Traffic (cro. Informacijski sustavi u PiT prometu) which was held by ph.d. Dragan Peraković. During that class I started working with Dragan Peraković on an e-Learning (e-Student) system that will be later implemented throughout the Faculty’s teaching process. Also, during the work on that project with two of my colleagues (Zdravko Šašek and Kristijan Meić) a paper that we wrote was selected for Rectors reward and that project was my thesis which was mentored by ph.d. Dragan Peraković. I’m an author or co-author of several scientific papers focused on e-Learning systems, securing e-Learning systems and fuzzy logic in closed systems.
In my early ages in elementary school, sometime around of age of 12, I started to work with computers and computer programming. My first encounter with computer was an Orao and my first developed program was written in Basic. Later on I developed several applications in QBasic and Borland Delphi (does anyone even remember Delphi 3?). In high school my friend and I developed our first web page which is still alive an running! It was a time when IRC was at it’s peak and accessing the Internet was possible only with 14.4kbs modem for a sky-high price :) Of course our first web site was developed purely in HTML and CSS. later on I learned to develop using Classic ASP.
